Good Morning!

I felt awful all day yesterday until just before dinner time.  The no sleep really caught up with me ~ or something did!   Thank goodness I got a good night's sleep last night and I feel positively human today.     

Mike was on cooking duty.   His choice.  Over the years he has taken over the corned beef and cabbage (a.k.a. the Boiled Dinner).  I peel the carrots for him and he throws them in with some little red potatoes.   

Because I felt so punk, I completely forgot that I was going to take my blood test yesterday morning, so I skipped the cabbage which Mike assured me was great last night, and just had the rest of the meal for dinner.   Those wonderful green leafy veggies that are so good for you because they are rich in Vitamin K also encourage your blood to clot faster, which is the opposite of what my daily rat poison pill does.  If you have them all the time, they simply adjust your dosage, but if you don't have them all the time, best not to have one of them right before a blood test.   Hopefully I'll remember to do my test this morning, and then tomorrow night I can enjoy the cabbage with the rest of the meal.  

We're planning to go out for Fish and Chips at the Bonefish tonight and then having corned beef and cabbage tomorrow night and Rubens on Saturday.    Then on Sunday, I'll make the Irish Stew.   I used to always make Irish Soda Bread but I haven't for several years.  Maybe I'll think about making some again this year, though given my disastrous results every time I bake something lately, maybe not.  I'm blaming this oven.   I never used to have trouble.   Anyway ~ we'll see.

No, Miss Smarty Pants, we really do use the Norwex cleaning cloths and a few other of their things.  Unlike everyone else, though, I don't clean every day and keep the house and me-self at the ready for company 24/7.  I'm sure everyone else in our neighborhood does, and you do to, of course.  I'm just a lazy slug who sees that the dark wood floor could use a sweep or a wash almost every day ~~ and ignores it.  lol 

We do seem to use the cloths daily on the black granite counters and fairly often on the black tempered glass kitchen table (what WAS I thinking?!).  We both really love them and while they are pricey, over time they should save money because you use them instead of paper towels and you don't use them with anything but water.   They really leave surfaces looking polished, too.

Our neighbor Lisa has an office job and also sells the Norwex Cleaning Products out of her home.   She brought them over to me last night.  I had ordered them the day before but thought I'd have to wait for them to be delivered.  She had everything I wanted on hand.   I can't wait to give Marcela her surprise of three different cleaning cloths ~ the ones of mine that she likes best.    I think I'll stop putting mine out for her or we're likely to get who's cloth is who's confused.  I hope she will enjoy using them in her own house and for her other clients as well.   Mike really likes them, too, and I got some extra things for us.

Lisa's daughter in Wisconsin just had twins in January, so she has gone out to be with them a couple of times.  She's very petite so when she told me that one of the twins was over 6 lbs and the other over 7 when they were born, I couldn't imagine a tiny thing like Lisa giving birth to 14 lbs of babies!   She said her daughter is bigger than she is, but still was huge before the babies came.  Ouch!   Both are doing well, so that's the main thing.

Thank you so much for the beautiful Molly Harrison tag!  I love it and have it saved ~~ along with the matching border.

St. Patrick's Day countdown banner 

Well Dorothy, you would be wrong about me always being ready for company. And someone seems to drop in daily and I am mortified at how I look. I only get dressed if I am going out.  Otherwise I live in loungers as they are so much more comfortable than pants and I wear no bra either (I do when going out). I stopped using makeup when I got shingles on my face and had all the eye trouble. With the right eye closed, I cannot use mascara so I just skip it all. I will use lip gloss on occasion, lol. I am usually a mess and so is our house. I have come to the decision if they do not like it, they do not have to come over.

I am glad your finally got some good sleep. I know well about cabbage, lol. I have had to skip the vegetable more than once because of impending INR. Sucks!! Hope you did your test. I am supposed to go Monday or early next week. I will have to tell them the change of meds and hope I am not going to have to keep going weekly. 

We had A&W for supper...it is open again!!  I had a bacon cheese burger, fries, onion rings and a Strawberry Lime Slushee.  I was in A&W Heaven. Though sadly, the slushee was far from the best I ever had. Only once could I really taste the Lime in it, and they do not squeeze a lime and then drop it in any more.  I always would fish out the lime and squeeze it some more, lol.  Mom and I always order different sides and then split them, that is why I get rings and fries :)

Tomorrow mom and I are going to clean out the refrigerator.  Lord but it needs it.  The freezer is looking a bit bare so it is a good time to sort it out and see what we might want brought up from the basement. The fridge part really needs cleaning. I am sure it has been well over a year since we have done it. With taking all the shelves out, etc anyway.  So that will be our day.

Mom says Jordan is coming next week to do the kitchen floor and take things to the basement (winter decor)  Mom cleaned off the radiator today and we will clean out the curio tomorrow or Sunday. He will also take down the Santa pictures that got missed when we took down Christmas, lol.

Time to say "Good night, 

sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite".

Well, Sure and Welcome to the Weekend.

Because of the good night's sleep the night before, I felt sooo good yesterday.  Oh, my.  I LIKE feeling good.  I think I'd like to do that again sometime.

We went to the Bonefish for Fish and Chips last night ~~ that's Irish, isn't it?   Their normal fish and chips are as good as those I grew up with in Minnesota ~ beer battered and sooo light and loverly.  Now they have a new Friday night special during Happy Hour ~ which is just when we old folks go out to eat.  Instead of three pieces of lovely light beer battered fish, they have  two pieces of fish battered with Blue Moon.  This is dark and crunchy and absolutely delicious ~~ and $4 cheaper.  What's not to love?     For dessert, they had 'real' Strawberry Shortcake on a biscuit.  Well, of course, we had to share that.

Home again.  Barbara came over as we returned and brought chocolate chip cookies.  She is getting ready to leave on a six week Mission to Africa the end of the week and was cleaning out her refrigerator.  She had some cookie dough she had to use up, so we're having a cookie before breakfast this morning!   

She also asked if we wanted her to spray paint our copper pipes (to the sprinkler system) with gray paint?  (Say WHAT?  lol).  Shortly after we moved in we learned that some of the neighbors had their copper piping stolen and had to replace it.  Several neighbors disconnect it every winter and take it inside.  Obviously we aren't going to do that, but it's a worry.   Mark (across the street neighbor who was just elected to the HOA board) told her that apparently when the pipes are painted with this paint, it isn't worth as much to thieves.  They have to remove the paint to sell it or sell it for a lot less, so painting it should deter thieves.  He had given her some paint and she is going to spray it on our pipes.  

She and Mark are good friends and she really feels that with him on the Board they will focus more on helping and doing what the neighbors want than on "controlling" the neighbors, which as you know has really set my teeth on edge.  I hope so.  When we first moved in I was so impressed with how helpful the HOA was, but then when they replaced the Builder with homeowners, it changed and they seemed to feel like we were all the enemy and needed to be supervised and controlled.  We wouldn't have bought here if we'd had a clue that was the way it was going to be.   I even wrote a letter early on expressing that ~ in very 'soft and gentle' terms.   Apparently I wasn't the only one who was unhappy.   They are all good people and do a lot of work to make things run smoothly for us, but I wouldn't have voted for Michael Bloomberg if I lived in NY and I didn't want to live under his control in my own neighborhood!    Oooh, chill, Dorothy. LOL   It's going to be a lovely day. 


.   I see laundry in my future today, at least two loads, and if we don't get the cat's claws cut we're going to be shredded!   I'm way overdue for the infamous Budget Book, too.

I didn't sleep as well last night, but still better than I had been.  I may have to get a mallet and conk myself in the head every night at bed time!   Hopefully I got enough to feel pretty good again today.

I did get my blood test done yesterday morning.   It was surprisingly low, 2.0, so it's a good thing I hadn't had the cabbage the night before or it would have been too low.   My numbers were so steady and in the middle for so long, I don't know what's going on.   We get our meds delivered, three months at a time.  They were coming from Medco, but the company changed to OptimRx and the pills are different in looks.  I suspect the different generic is causing the problem.  

Your A&W meal sounded delish!  I thought your mom gave up her car.  How do you get to A&W?

Sounds like you and your mom are going to be doing a lot of work.  I'm so glad your nephews are so good about helping you.  They're good boys.


Have a happy weekend!

Good Morning

It's a frosty 28 degrees right now, but heading for the higher 50s.   

Mike is making Ruebins for dinner with the leftover corned beef, but i think I will go ahead and make the Irish Stew this afternoon so we can just reheat it when we want to eat it.    We plan to go out for a St Paddy's day lunch tomorrow, so we may want a bit of the stew tomorrow night and we'll certainly want it the next night . . . or two.

Yesterday we "Netfilxed" (watched one episode after another of the BBC show Copper which is about the Irish and the blacks and others in post Civil War New York).  The show is rather violent but so well done, and we love the Irish background music.   In the evening we watched Patriot Games, so we definitely got our Irish 'fix'.   We may continue some of that today.  

Tomorrow night, of course, we watch The Quiet Man.  It's tradition!

Norwegians, Irish, Lutefisk & Lefse explained


The reason the Irish celebrate St. Patrick's Day is because this is when St.Patrick drove the Norwegians out of Ireland.

It seems that some centuries ago, many Norwegians came to Ireland to escape the bitterness of the Norwegian winter. Ireland was having a famine at the time, and food was scarce. The Norwegians were eating almost all the fish caught in the area, leaving the Irish with nothing to eat but potatoes. St. Patrick, taking matters into his own hands, as most Irishmen do, decided the Norwegians had to go.

Secretly, he organized the Irish IRATRION (Irish Republican Army to Rid Ireland of Norwegians). Irish members of IRATRION passed a law in Ireland that prohibited merchants from selling ice boxes or ice to the Norwegians, in hopes that their fish would spoil. This would force the Norwegians to flee to a colder climate where their fish would keep.

Well, the fish spoiled, all right, but the Norwegians, as every one knows today, thrive on spoiled fish. So, faced with failure, the desperate Irishmen sneaked into the Norwegian fish storage caves in the dead of night and sprinkled the rotten fish with lye, hoping to poison the Norwegian invaders.

But, as everyone knows, the Norwegians thought this only added to the flavor of the fish, and they liked it so much they decided to call it "lutefisk", which is Norwegian for "luscious fish".

Matters became even worse for the Irishmen when the Norwegians started taking over the Irish potato crop and making something called "lefse".

Poor St. Patrick was at his wit's end, and finally on March 17th, he blew his top and told all the Norwegians to "GO TO HELL". So they all got in their boats and emigrated to The Dakotas and Minnesota -- the only other paradise on earth where smelly fish, old potatoes and plenty of cold weather can be found in abundance.

Sure and that's the way it was, and why we celebrate St Patrick's Day today.

Happy St Paddy's Day!


An Irish Prayer

May God give you...

For every storm, a rainbow,

For every tear, a smile,

For every care, a promise,

And a blessing in each trial.

For every problem life sends.

A faithful friend to share,

For every sigh, a sweet song,

And an answer for each prayer.

Hi Dorothy, copper theft has been a problem for some time now.  I never heard of painting it, but it makes sense.  Mom was going to make corned beef and cabbage today but I said no as I need to have my INR checked in the next couple days.  She will make it Wednesday instead.  So today we had a beef roast with potatoes and carrots cooked in with it.  It was delish.

We did get the refrigerator all cleaned out and scrubbed down yesterday.  We were exhausted after just doing the main shelving and drawers.  Mom was items as the sink.  I took everything out and washed down the inside or the main part of fridge.  It was really dirty.  We both were tired and sweaty and had not done the door shelves.  I said my vote is we finish up tomorrow.  Mom 2nded it.  So I finished up the door shelves today and tossed some really old stuff.  A half full jar of maraschino cherries that neither of us remembered where it came from or how old it was.  Trashed!  I have not plans for tomorrow.  I do want to watch The Quiet Man too but not sure that will happen as mom is a creature of habit and knows what channel the TV should be on every minute during the day.  And DWTS starts tomorrow night.  So wish me luck for fitting it in.

Hugs,

Top O' the Mornin' to Ya.   'Tis St Paddy's Day, it tis!

We've had a pretty tame celebration, but still pretty nice.   We went out for Fish and Chips once (ok, maybe more English) and we're going to The Hideaway for an Irish lunch today.   Early in the week Mike made the corned beef and cabbage with carrots and potatoes, and last night he used the last of the corned beef to make what just may have been the best Rueben sandwich I have EVER had!   I believe there is enough for another one tonight if we're still hungry after lunch.   

Yesterday I made Irish Stew even though we won't have it until tomorrow, and it will feed us for the rest of the week.  Tonight, we watch The Quiet Man.  'Tis tradition!

  Lou Ann, good for you getting the fridge cleaned.  That really is a tough job, but like most big jobs, you feel so good when it's done!

There are things we would normally watch on TV tonight, too but for some rason most of the things we would normally watch are not on.   If they were we would probably watch them on OnDemand the next day so we could watch The Quiet Man.  Tradition must be preserved!  

I'm not sure what we'll have for lunch today.  They have three "Irish offerings", one of which, Bangers and Mashed, I will definitely NOT be having.  Another is Corned beef, but since we've had that all week, prob'ly not.  The last is Shepard's Pie.  That does tempt me.  And of course we could still order from the regular menu if we wanted to.    

Barbara may go with us, but she has a conference call about her Mission to Ecuador in June at near the same time, so she may not.   She's leaving for a six week Mission in Kenya the end of the week.  The woman is amazing!    I have a box of Godiva cookies I'm going to give her to slip into her suitcase to take with her if she has the room.  Women NEED chocolate, and as hard as she works, she needs it more than the rest of us do.  

Happy St Paddy's Day!

Happy St. Paddy's Day

We have not done a thing to celebrate the day. Wait!!!  We did eat frosted shamrock cookies! Does that count? LOL We did not even wear green! Not very enthusiastic are we?

Shepherds Pie sounds good to me! Mom would love Mike's Rueben, it is one of her favorite sandwiches. Too bad we could not have gotten food from Culver's today, mom loves their Rueben. When we got A&W the other day, Suz had taken mom to a 4pm appt to have her port flushed. So they swung by A&W on the way home. They got in early and we ended up eating before 4:30 but that was ok.

Did I tell you that Reid and Tricia took Finn to Disney World for his 2nd birthday. He loves Meme and Mo Mouse. Tricia has been posting pics and I am amazed to see that he is not afraid of the characters at all. He is having a wonderful time. So I am going to share some pics.

Getting ready


At the hotel

He is astounded that his waffle looks like Mo Mouse.

Playing in the water.


Meeting the Mice

   


He is having a wonderful time and I am enjoying seeing the pictures, there are a whole lot more, lol.

Have a wonderful Tuesday.  I will be going for my INR.

Hugs,

Ah, sure and 'tis the day after St Pat's, and time to take a wee break from the green.  We took Barbara to the Hideaway for lunch yesterday and it was really good.  They had a special Irish menu in addition to the regular menu.  She chose the corned beef and cabbage, which she said was really good.  We'd had that all week, so we opted for the Sheppard's Pie, which was amazing!  That dish could have been anything, so we were being a wee bit adventurous.  They started with a small very good salad and I opted for the dressing of honey and balsamic, while Mike had Bleu cheese.  Then the pie was served in a very hot dish with mashed potatoes on the bottom (Mike burned the roof of his mouth on them!), then a layer of the most delicious sauce and meat and veggie filling, and topped with a puffed pastry top.  Seriously delish.   I ended up bringing half of mine home and Mike and I shared it for a dinnertime snack since we were still pretty full from lunch.  They served an "Irish Tea Cake" for dessert (dense white cake with pureed fruit and whipped cream), and we all had a glass of Guinness Draf.

Conversation flowed, and then after a two hour lunch it was time to get Barb back home so she could finish getting ready for her trip to Kenya on Thursday.  Lovely lunch.   In the evening we opted to pass on our regular TV shows and watch them on OnDemand later so we could maintain tradition and watch "The Quiet Man".  It never gets old.

The Leprechauns brought me the new Joanne Fluke book, Blackberry Pie Murder, and they brought Mike some Godiva dark chocolate covered pretzels. 

  Mike is going to use up the last of the corned beef on some more of those heavenly Reubens tonight and then we have the Irish Stew I made for the rest of the week.  Life is good.   


I'm sure a frosted shamrock cookie counts!  I'm not sure just what it was that made those Ruebens so good.  He used a good rye bread that we like, the corned beef was very good, and the Thousand Island was just plain old Kraft.  He did heat the sauerkraut in cream, so maybe that was it.  I'm not sure.  I just know I'm really looking forward to having one again tonight.

It's turning out much colder than they had predicted, hovering right around freezing, terrible winds, and it's snowing as we speak.  Yesterday I didn't even need a jacket.  Crazy!

Finn is SO adorable!!

Stay warm!

THINK SPRING
IF ENOUGH OF US DO IT, MAYBE IT WILL HAPPEN.
WORTH A TRY, LOL. IT WAS NOT SO BAD OUT TODAY BUT VERY WINDY WHICH MAKES THE CHILL GO RIGHT THROUGH YOU. I DID GO FOR MY INR BUT NO RESULTS.  THE LAB WAS VERY BUSY AND IT WAS AFTER 4PM WHEN I GOT IN, SO THEY MAYBE DID NOT SEE IT TODAY. I WILL GIVE THEM TILL NOON AND IF I DO NOT HEAR FROM THEM I WILL CALL. I GOT MY NEBULIZER MEDS IN THE MAIL SO I WILL START THOSE TREATMENTS TOMORROW. SO I HAVE TO REPORT THAT AND THE CHANGE OF INHALER. ON TOP OF IT ALL, I MISSED TAKING ALL MY MONDAY EVENING PILLS...SO NO COUMADIN. NOT SURE WHAT MY NUMBERS WILL LOOK LIKE. MAKES ME ANGRY. 
I AM GLAD YOU WERE ABLE TO HAVE LUNCH OUT WITH YOUR NEIGHBOR. SHE IS SUCH AN AMAZING WOMAN. IT IS GREAT TO BECOME FRIENDS WITH THE NEIGHBORS. THE FOOD ALL SOUNDS WONDERFUL. EVEN THE DESSERT. I NEVER HEARD OF HEATING SOUR KRAUT IN CREAM. IS THAT THE NORM?  WELL, WELL, VISITED BY THE WEE ONES. HOW LUCKY YOU ARE. THEY NEVER VISIT ME. OTHER THAN THE SHAMROCK COOKIES, SO I CANNOT COMPLAIN.
MOM WENT TO MAKE THE CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE AND WE DO NOT HAVE ANY POTATOES...SO UNTIL WE DO, NO CORNED BEEF. SO WE HAD HAMBURGERS. MOM IS GETTING VERY BAD WITH REMEMBERING WHAT WE NEED ON THE GROCERY LIST. THEN WE GO AS WEEK WITHOUT IT. IT IS TIMES LIKE THIS THAT MOM GETS REALLY FRUSTRATED AND HATES THAT SHE IS NO LONGER DRIVING. I DO NOT BLAME HER. I MISS HER BEING ABLE TO RUN FOR THINGS TOO. BUT SINCE I HAVE NEVER DRIVEN, I AM USED TO HAVING TO WAIT. EXCEPT FOR WHEN I LIVED WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF THE STORE. BUT I NEVER COULD BUY MORE THAN WHAT I COULD CARRY.
NOTHING ELSE NEW AROUND HERE. I SUSPECT THAT MY SISTER IS STILL DOING SOMETHING BAD. SHE IS JUST VERY SECRETIVE AND SEEMS TO BE HIDING SOMETHING ALL THE TIME. I JUST DO NOT KNOW WHAT OR HOW TO FIND OUT. IT IS FRUSTRATING. THEY ARE ALWAYS BROKE SO I DO NOT KNOW WHAT IT COULD BE...MAYBE SHE STILL BUYS DRUGS FOR PERSONAL USE FOR HER AND THE BOYS...THOUGH SHE DENIED USING IT. BUT SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT. I TOLD MOM THAT I ALMOST WISHED THAT JORDAN WOULD HAVE TO GO TO JAIL SO THAT HE WOULD WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE. BUT I DO NOT WANT TO HIM TO HAVE A SEX OFFENDER RECORD. PLUS I WORRY ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUNG MEN IN JAIL. SUZ AND HER HUSBAND BITCH ABOUT THE BOYS BUT THEY ARE BOTH ENABLERS. SUZ TRIED TO BE THEIR BUDDY INSTEAD OF THEIR MOM AND JERRY WOULD RATHER NOT DEAL WITH ANY OF IT. HE IS EITHER AT WORK, OUT OR ASLEEP. HE SLEEPS FAR MORE THAN NORMAL. SUZ NEVER SLEEPS ENOUGH. OK, I ALWAYS GET MYSELF STARTED, LOL.
TODAY JORDAN DID COME OVER (WITH A FRIEND) AND DID THE KITCHEN FLOOR, TOOK SOME THINGS TO THE BASEMENT AND PUT UP THE NEW CURTAINS.  HE WAS SUPPOSED TO DO LAUNDRY BUT HE MANAGED TO NOT DO THAT. OH, WELL, HE GOT HIS MONEY AND RAN.
TOMORROW IS HUMP DAY ALREADY, TIME JUST FLIES.
SPEAKING OF WHICH, IT IS TIME TO BE OFF TO LALA LAND.  HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY.
HUGS,

Good Afternoon!

Marcela just left so the house is clean, and I am dressed and made up and my hair is combed!   Enjoy it while it lasts.  

I should do some laundry today, but whether I will remains to be seen.  Yesterday I had what Mike called a "Husband Enforced Goof Off Day".  The bible tells me I should submit to my husband, so I do.  Sometimes.  When it suits me.  

Lovely windless, snowless day in the mid 50s today.  Spring tomorrow.  Suppose we'll have a blizzard.

smiley3

Oooh, pretty Spring border ~ which I will steal. 

I hate the winds ~ seems like I've said that before, about a dozen times.  I know what you mean about it going right through you, too.

I'm sorry you didn't get your results.  I hope they are good and you can start to go a little longer between tests.  Hard when you are using new meds.  Doubly hard when you miss a dose, but that's so easy to do.   

You're still on Coumadin.  They switched me to the generic Warfarin years ago.  I know the hype, but I never feel the generic is as good as the original.  My Insurer switched drug companies recently from Medco to Optim Rx, and the pills (still the generic Warfarin) look entirely different, and since I've been on the new pills, my numbers have been all over the board, where they were steady before.

No, the cream in the Sauerkraut is pure Mike, and this was the first time he'd done it.  His undergraduate degree is in Chemistry and he worked as a Chemist in his first job before he was drafted.  There is still quite a bit of the Mad Scientist about him.  

We are going to have the Irish Stew I made the other day tonight.  I was going to make some Irish Soda Bread to go with it, but we don't have any buttermilk, so I'm off the hook.  Oh, er, I mean I can't.  LOL

Oh, dear.  I hope Suz isn't doing something dumb that will cause her problems.  Hard to expect the boys to walk the straight and narrow when the parents abdicate.   My sister-in-law, Alice was like that.  Wanted to be the girls friend and not their mom.  I tend to think they had lots of friends but they needed a mom.  She'd put my brother down when he'd try to discipline.  Still, somehow, the girls grew up into lovely young women, mothers and now grandmothers.   I would feel as you do, that it would better for the kids to get a good scare now to help them turn things around before it really is too late, but I would hate to see Jordan having a sex offender tag for the rest of his life.  My fingers are crossed for him.  

Well, later, my Lovlies.  Keep thinking thoughts of Spring.

I just lost my whole post by hitting some key on my keyboard. Not clue what is may be.  But it was long...a lot of silliness and I am not going that route again.
This border and tag will be my good bye to Winter and Welcome to Spring.  Even if it snows after this, I will not use graphics to encourage it, lol.
Got my INR results, I had to call.  2.1 something, lol.  She thought it would be fine due to the missed dose the night before.  So take am extra half today and the continue as normal and recheck in 2 weeks.
Have a great day tomorrow.
Hugs,

Hello and Welcome to the First Day of Spring!   It's currently 37 degrees, but heading for 61!  That really will feel like Spring has Sprung!

I've been awake since maybe 2:30, dozing a bit until I finally got up at 5.  I may feel more like the Last Rose of Summer as the day progresses.

Last night we had the Irish Stew I made earlier and it was really good, if I do say so meself. We'll have it again tonight and on Saturday.  I think we're going out for the Fish and Chips special at the Bonefish tomorrow. 

 Not much planned for today, though as usual there are a ton of things that I should be doing.

Lou Ann, I'm glad your numbers came in good even though you missed a dose.  Do they think 2.1 is too low??  I thought anything between 2 & 3 was ok, though of course we'd rather have it in the middle.   

Sorry you lost your post!  That is sooo frustrating!   Hopefully the rest of the day will go well.

HAPPY SPRING!
